    On a serious note though... Wolf didn't have life experiences his dad did that fueled his drive and obsession when it came to playing music. You hunt far more aggressively when you're hungry...
    If you haven't had to struggle for anything I'd imagine it'd be difficult to summon the inner fire re: obsession, drive, aggressive.

  2. Roth Lives! Ain't Talkin' Bout Love - David Lee Roth Studio Live

Awesome to know that Dave can still bring it vocally if he wants to.
    He probably can bring it for a song but doing a tour is another ball park. I think Dave was happy with how it turned out and put it out for the public to hear. I wouldn't read too much into it. It's probably Dave saying by example I still got it so fuck off Gene Simmons.

    No Thomas Dolby, Human League, New Order, Depeche Mode, or Orchestral Maneuvers in the Dark riffs?
    I think he's more into R&B and that Italdisco shit.
    That makes sense. The dude seems to be completely clueless. Synth was a popularized early 80's thing to me

  4. DLR: "I'm Only In The Middle Of My First Retirement"

    These aging, wheezing classic rock bands are on the whole too old to get it up.

    Had to ask myself several years back, why am I continuing to pay good money for substandard performances? For the privilege of being in the vicinity of 'living legends'?

    Fuck 'em. Let others fund their golden years.
    Depends. Saw Cheap Trick and they are still good. Robin Zander sings as good as ever. Saw Ace Frehley. Must have been a good night. I enjoyed it. His solos were great. Alice Cooper still worth seeing. With Ace he had a great band. He lays back and letís the band carry him while he throws picks out but when itís Ace do a solo time heís still Ace Frehley.

    I can see wanting to see the band before they finally tap out from touring, therefore you bite the bullet and overpay the piper, particularly if one has never seen them live...because the Stones...they're just one of those bands...and with Charlie having passed an Mick having suffered heart problems, clearly it is no longer the case that the chances to see the band are endless in terms of years and years left to check them out.

    I can recall thinking at the time that the $50 I paid for my scalped Stones ticket in 1989 was akin to highway robbery...good luck paying less than 6x that amount now, and that's just for nosebleed stadium seats.
    Whatís funny is in 1981 I did the same thing. I had a summer job at a country club. Two of the lifeguards who were older were talking about getting tickets to see The Stones in Phoenix. Me and another guy decided we might as well go because The Stones weíre getting old and we might not have another chance. So we bought our tickets and headed to Phoenix in one of the life guardís van.
